Take Heed of Counterfeit Money
The Town of Louisa Police Department has seen an increase in the quantity of counterfeit U.S. currency in recent weeks. Currently, LPD in conjunction with Louisa County Sheriff’s Office are aggressively pursuing these cases which have stemmed from Town and County wide businesses. At this time both agencies have experienced or recovered counterfeit money in dominations of $20’s and $100 bills. Businesses are reminded to take caution when handling U.S. currency and utilize their appropriate training to detect falsified monies; such as the “Pen Test” method. Unfortunately, these forgeries are still finding their way into cash registers.
There have been reports of people going door to door selling alarm systems. They may try to replace your existing system by giving false information. Reputable alarm companies do not solicit door to door for business. If someone comes to your door wanting to inspect or sell you an alarm system, do not let them into your home. Call the police or sheriff’s department. If you would like to purchase a home alarm, contact the alarm company of your choice by phone and schedule an appointment. Attached is a notice from the Federal Trade Commission warning about door to door scams for alarms. Be safe, don’t let them into your home.
